The House GOP wants to bring back "asset tests" for food stamps. That's a terrible, no good, very bad idea.
How many of the Congress members' constituents used food stamps didn't matter at all.
Across the country, immigration reform advocates are challenging GOP lawmakers to support a path to citizenship.
This is not a safe way to govern the country.
Recent weeks have birthed the strangest strain of commentary I can remember: The Republican Party's crazy opinions are President Obama's fault.
Some smart analysts think so. But I doubt it.
House Democrats got 54,301,095 votes while House Republicans got 53,822,442. That is to say, House Republicans did the equivalent of winning the electoral college while losing the popular vote. That doesn't give them a mandate. But it doesn't mean Obama gets one, either.
